What's the weather like in your area?

Our local Beeb weatherman tells us we can expect the equivalent of a normal July's rainfall in the next 24 hours. As I type, all tarted up for night out, but going in 4x4.

Well a lovely day her e in S Devon. Unfortunately no gardening time, fixing Bloke's computer (again!) but then a spontaneous retro trip to local steam railway, lovely walk by the river, then rescued 2 very confused Japanese tourists. Just been for a wander through the jungle, picked a few peas and broad beans, off for a garden visit jolly with girly mate tomorrow. So possibly time to garden on Friday...when it will be raining again. Oh goody.

Haven't got any pressure washer tips, but can relate to Mummy Muddy Paws - I 'inherited' Bloke's mother's Kenwood Chef a couple of weeks ago. It's hardly out of use as every time I make a loaf of bread, Bloke devours most of it in one sitting.

ID of plant

It's a euphorbia of some sort. I'm sure someone will come up with the correct cultivar.

has a gas leak killed my euonymous

You say the leak was found quite close to the affected plant. I'm wondering whether the supply pipe had to be dug up and repaired, in which case the root system might have been damaged.

Can anyone identify this plant please

Possibly stephanotis?

Lovely day today here in the SW. Spent a few hours in the garden, looked so much better afterwards! Unfortunately ( for me) the garden happened to be my sister's. Hope to be able to spend some time in mine tomorrow, weather looks promising...

Possibly erysimum linifolium Variegatum.

Plant on the left looks like one of the perennial wallflowers to me.

Overwintered runner bans

Left the roots in after clearing last year's crop, they've survived the winter and putting up new growth.
